Gabriella Coslovich – Whiteley on Trial

28 February @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

It was a cause célèbre: the biggest case of alleged art fraud to come before the Australian criminal justice system, a $4.5 million sting drawing in one of the country’s most gifted and tragic artists, Brett Whiteley. It started with suspicions raised about artworks being produced in the style of Whiteley from a Melbourne art restorer’s studio. In her book about the scandal, Whiteley On Trial, author Gabriella Coslovich discusses the trial and acquittal by the Appeals Bench. Join her as she talks about this intriguing story with Geelong Gallery Director Jason Smith.
